My son keeps waking up crying every night I get very few sleep because he calms down for maybe 1/2 hr and then he starts again. The problem is that he wakes up her sister who is only 11months so I end up with 2 babies crying :( please someone help me! What can I do?

I want to add, I bet they are two beautiful babies... But I wanted to ask, do they sleep in separate rooms or share a room? I thought they might share that's why one wakes the other. Lol, I have to laugh with my own private thought, I use to say to myself, I'll be damned if I'm going to walk on egg shells while my daughter is sleeping. I run the vacuum, talk at a normal high tone of voice, clang dishes, etc. and she slept fine... To me, that's the only time you have to get things done.(while they sleep) get her' done... I hope I at least made you smile...

Thanks for your advices. Yes they sleep in separate rooms but next to each other she's getting used to the crying so lately she sleeps through. With him ahh what can I tell you he has a strong temper low patient and other reasons that made me put him in school so that's the big chance going on now but that's not the reason why he cries because he was doing it before. He calls me, asks me for milk or whatever I give him what he asks and he doesn't even wanted it. It's just excuses to get me into the room :( so its getting difficult but keeping faith that its just a stage and it'll go away soon hopefully!!! It's just hArd because I don't want to see him cry but I'm also very tired :(

Well I don't know your life style, meaning, is there a lot of yelling and arguing going on during the day? If so, even though you think they don't hear you, they do. But if that's not the case then have a just before bed time, mommy and your 2 year old. Have a couple of cookies and milk together quietly, play the who can chew this cookie the quietest, it's fun and you'll have some laughs...Then he'll be more comforted and relaxed when going to sleep. Oh also, what I used to do is read a short, quick book to my daughter every night at bed time. Nothing long, the library has tons of quick reading books, but it's the mom's voice that relax's your child before bed. Remember, your the most important person in that child's life...Something a lot of people don't think about is, it's a child, two years old means he's only been on this earth for 730 day's. How much could one learn in that amount of time when they hardly can talk? Something to think about, good luck hope this helped... I have bragging rights, lol I did all this reading short stories etc. and my daughter now in 10th grade is dual enrolled doing collage classes. I so hope my opinion was helpful...

First two things to consider are hunger/thirst or the need to visit the loo. Sometimes the child is unable to figure out where he is hurting and why. You need to talk to him and help him articulate what's wrong. I know it can be difficult when you are sleep deprived yourself with two small children to look after, but try feeding him something or making him visit the loo to see if it makes a difference.
